Kya Dilli Kya Lahore stars Manu Rishi, Vijay Raaz, who has also directed the film and Raj Zutshi. It’s a completely different take on the Indo-Pak relationship. The film is set a few months after the partition in 1948 and has a very different and non-political approach on India-Pakistan relationship. Kya Dilli Kya Lahore is not preachy but indeed it has a message of social harmony and oneness.
In 1948, the year India got Independence, crossfire erupts at an isolated stretch of the Indo-Pak border, leaving only two soldiers alive. One is an Indian soldier of Pakistani origin while the other happens to be a Pakistani soldier of Indian origin. An ironic story of pride and survival begins when – in an attempt to evade danger, they bump into each other. And amidst continuous exchange of bullets, altercations and murkier situations, it evolves into a journey of human connection with an unforeseeable end.
